need advice on how to remove VTC on 2010 sentra

Looking for some advise on how to remove the vtc on a 2010 sentra 2.0.

any links on a video would be helpful. Mine is under motor mount and in a tight space. I hope I can get to it if I pull the plastic fender shroud.

Thanks in advance

Hi Dean

This doesn't look like the same engine. I have the 2.0. looks like my vvt is at the front of the engine. I pulled the inside splash fender off and there is a circular hole and I am able to see the vvt. I pulled the *mm bolt and the dam thing was seized. I spun the ear and used pin nose pliers to pull and only half of the shit ass thing came out. Tomorrow I need to figure out how to remove the rest. There is no hole so I can't so the screw and wheel puller trick. I'm going to try a stronger pin nose pliers to grasp the 1/4 in lip maybe this will work. Worse case a small hole with a small screw and some shavings in the engine. This just has me really ticked. I hate the fact that the intake plenum is over the engine where you cannot disconnect the coil packs with the engine running. Oh well I will post how I make out tomorrow and thanks for the reply.

Got the VVT out after is broke in two when I was pulling on it. Pictures attached. I found a bolt that I was able to thread into the short opening and pulled some with the end of a hammer.
